Or do you and your significant other have a song? I'm going all out for Vday this year and I need to download some romantic songs. What are your favorites? Thanks in advance!

The song I'll Be by Edwin McCain is TO DIE FOR. One of the best songs I've ever heard, honestly.

Sexual Healing

Shake You Down (the Gregory Abbot version)

Don't Know Much (Aaron Neville & Linda Ronstadt)

Nothing like a smooth-voiced man to put me in the mood for love :)

Anything by Kenny G

Shania Twain- You're Still The One, From This Moment
Percy Sledge or Michael Boltons-When A Man Loves a Woman
Barry White-You're My First, The Last, My Everything, It's Ecstasy When You Lay Down Next To Me, Love's Theme, I'm Gonna Love You Just A Little More, Baby

Hey JERSEYGIRL,

True story ~ When my wife and I were about 6 months into our relationship I sent her a copy of Cross My Heart by George Strait one morning in the mail. When I got home that evening there was a small package for me from her, it was a tape of Tracy Byrd ~ with a note saying the song Keeper of The Stars was from her to me. This was not Valentines Day or anything, just another day ~~ fate? ;)

I'm rather fond of the underappreciated country songs. "Our" song when we were dating was If I Never Stop Loving You, but darned if I recall who sang it. (Chorus: "If I never stop loving you/Will you never stop wanting me to?/Say you won't and that's what I'll do/For forever with a heart so true/If you'll start and end every day/Forever never wanting me to go away/All I guess I'm gonna always do/Is never stop loving you.") I'm also very fond of Living in a Moment, but again I can't remember who did it. I'm really bad at recalling names sometimes. :lol:

Of course, when it comes to what I think are the best love songs, honestly two always get me, and they're old 'uns: I Walk the Line by Johnny Cash (and btw, I find it very ironic that they took a song about him being true to wife #1 to be the title of a movie in no small part about him falling for June Carter) and Luckenbach, Texas, which doesn't sound like it should be a love song, but the prevalent sentiment there is about getting back to the basics of love. And, well, I consider anything about Texas to be romantic. :lol: (I've been to Luckenbach, btw, it's got a population of about three people and five dogs and is one of *the* most relaxing places in the state of Texas.)

I also like Keith Whitley's version of When You Say Nothing at All. Love Allison Krauss, but Keith Whitley just does it better.

And Gary Allan's version of Best I Ever Had is just heartbreaking, especially when viewed through the lens of his wife's death.

Here's the words to "our" song by Led Zeppelin it's called "Thank You"

*If the sun refused to shine,
I would still be loving you.
When mountains crumble to the sea,
There will still be you and me.

Kind woman, I give you my all,
Kind woman, nothing more.
Little drops of rain whisper of the pain,
Tears of loves lost in the days gone by.
My love is strong, with you there is no wrong,
Together we shall go until we die.
My, my, my, An inspiration is what you are to me,
Inspiration, look see.
And so today, my world it smiles,
Your hand in mine, we walk the miles,
Thanks to you it will be done,
For you to me are the only one.
Happiness, no more be sad,
Happiness....I'm glad.

*Chorus

20 years later it still brings a tear to my eye when i hear it.....

Jen...I too am addicted to love songs! :lol: A lot of the 60's and 70's though. Feels Like Rain is a GREAT song! I first heard John Hiatt on the movie Raising Helen.

MonsterMomma...I love that song also, If I Never Stop Loving You...just can't remember who sings it.

I posted a lot of love songs, but not "our" song....which there is two, Give Me Forever, I Do by John Tesh & James Ingram, our wedding song, and NowThat I Found You by Terri Clark, our song when we were dating.

Gary - My bf and I met online in a Yahoo chat room. I live in NJ and he lives in Pittsburgh. We met for the first time right after Christmas. We tease each other and say "our" song is "You Had Me From Hello" by Kenny Chesney because both of us confessed after hearing each other say "Hello" on the mic in the chatroom....we knew we had to meet :o Hey JERSEYGIRL,

True story ~ When my wife and I were about 6 months into our relationship I sent her a copy of Cross My Heart by George Strait one morning in the mail. When I got home that evening there was a small package for me from her, it was a tape of Tracy Byrd ~ with a note saying the song Keeper of The Stars was from her to me.

I never really had a fav until this year. With the naming of our son James "Valentine" Michael...one of our hits has become "My Funny Valentine".

I love many of the songs that have been listed. Like you guys, I LOVE love songs. Sometimes I listen to "Delilah" on the radio at night....she plays dedications and requests...self-proclaimed "queen of sap"! :D

I don't think love songs are restricted to people in a romantic relationship...love songs to me are about love between mother/child, siblings, family, friends, men/women, etc.

Here are some of my faves:
-"Stand by Me" Ben E. King
-"Unchained Melody" Righteous Brothers
-"Can you feel the love tonight?" Elton John
-"Tiny Dancer" Elton John
-"I will always love you" Dolly Parton and Whitney Houston
-"Candle in the wind" Elton John (I love Elton!)
-"Jolene" Dolly Parton
-"If I should fall behind" Bruce Springsteen (Faith Hill does a good cover of this song)
-"Like we never loved at all" Faith Hill
-"Strawberry Wine" Deanna Carter
-"With or without you" U2
-"Angel of Mine" Monica
-"How can I live without you?" Leann Rimes
-"Teenager in Love" there are many covers, don't remember who sang the original...it's kind of a goofy 50's love song
-"I love you" Martina McBride
-"Wonderful Tonight" Eric Clapton
-"You'll be blessed" Elton John (this is a song to a future child)

This isn't a complete list, but it's all I have time for.

Edit: I thought of some more good ones. LOL.

-"My Girl" The Temptations
-"Unforgettable" Nat King Cole

Breathe (Faith Hill)

My boyfriend and I listen to a lot of cute love songs, but the one that we just melt is "Love Song". It was originally done by the Cure, but we love the 311 version.
